Race for state tightens up in TRL golf
The short-handed LO boys take third behind WL and Lakeridge
This week's Three Rivers League boys golf tournament went down to the wire at Chehalem Glen and Lake Oswego saw its long TRL winning streak snapped.
The Lakers were playing without one of their top golfers this week and both West Linn and Lakeridge took advantage of the opportunity.
West Linn won the event with a team score of 310 while Lakeridge and Lake Oswego tied for second just one stroke behind. However, the Pacers won the tiebreaker with a lower score from their fifth golfer.
Lakeridge was led by Cade Lawson, who shot a 73, tying him for medalist honors. Lawson has continued to lower his scores each week for the Pacers. Timothy Lee also shot his best round of the season with a 76.
That was followed by a pair of 81s from Jake Reiff and Jon Grace.
For Lake Oswego, both Riley Elmes and Cole Madey also tied for medalist honors with rounds of 73 while Brock Anderson fired a 75. Joe Torkelson shot a round of 90 in his first varsity match for the Lakers this season.
The teams have just one regular-season tournament remaining before districts which will be played Monday at Persimmon. Lake Oswego still holds a four-point advantage over West Linn for the league lead.
In the girls' tournament, Lake Oswego finished in third behind West Linn and Clackamas, falling behind the Cavaliers in the battle for second place.
Cami Dozois posted another strong score, tying for second place individually in the tournament with a 78.
Jessica Lee shot a 101 for Lake Oswego while Hanna Hibbs shot a solid 102 in her first varsity tournament this year.
For Lakeridge, Sonya Swanson led the way again with a 92 while Kendell Freemen shot a 97.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
